CFI On Campus Welcomes New Organizer Sarah Kaiser

October 4, 2012

Note: Former campus organizer Dren Asselmeier returned to Michigan and is now working as the Event Publicity Assistant for CFI–Michigan. We’re sad to lose her in Amherst but look forward to working with her in her new role!

Sarah Kaiser

Hello everyone!

My name is Sarah Kaiser, and I am thrilled to be starting out as the new campus organizer at the Center for Inquiry. I’ve been told that my predecessor here, Dren Asselmeier, answered emails in under five minutes—so I know I have my work cut out for me in living up to the fantastic work she did here.

Like Dren, I started out in the secular and freethought movement as a campus leader. I’m endlessly proud of the group I co-founded in 2008, the Secular Alliance of Indiana University (SAIU), an organization which continued to thrive after I left. As president of SAIU, I learned a ton about leadership, community building, and the international secular movement. CFI was instrumental in supporting SAIU’s efforts and helping me grow as a campus leader, and I look forward to sharing some of what I’ve learned.

I’m also excited for the chance to learn from you, and to help you to collaborate and share the work you’re doing with students around the globe. You wouldn’t be a part of this movement if you didn’t know that your work matters greatly, and if there is any way I might be able to support that work, please let me know. You can tweet at me—@sarahebkaiser on Twitter—or send me an email at I’ll do my best to get back to you as quickly as I can.

Also, just for fun, a bit about me—I’m a self-described atheist, feminist, and nerdy hipster ukulele player. I make YouTube videos and sometimes post cool stuff on Facebook, but I’ll only add you if I’ve met you in person. (Which, by the way, I can’t wait to do at next summer’s Student Leadership Conference!)

Take care, and stay in touch. *atheist hugs*,
